Distance PGDBA in Symbiosis


Khushali

I am planning to start PGDBA course from Symbiosis Distance Learning Center. Being a working lady I will be studying parallelly with my job. Can anybody tell me that Symbiosis is the right choice? Looking to the curriculum they offer and learning methodology (E Learning) they provide, will it be possible for me to continue both (my job and study) all together and give proper fairness to both.

How can anyone tell you that it's the right choice? Obviously it is possible to work and study at the same time. Millions of people do it. What matters is whether this diploma helps you meet your goals.

PS Great advice below from hipster.

If it was my decision I would stay far away from any MBA that doesn't have accreditation from AACSB, AMBA, or EQUIS. There are literally hundreds of online MBA programs around the world that have this - and the great part about these programs is that you don't have to live in the country where the school is to take a program like this. So look into all the big names - there are a lot in the UK, like Warwick, Durham, Aston, etc... Or IE in Spain... There are tons in the US, like UNC, Indiana Kelley, George Washington, etc.

This is a very broad, marketing-type statement. Of course "E Learning" allows you to balance work and school - that's the whole point! Better to look at what they actually offer rather than super vague statements.

What you should be looking for is a program that mixes the "E Learning" with on-campus residencies. I would look at the actual logistics involved - is the learning synchronous or asynchronous? And how is it delivered, technologically? THe unaccredited MBAs will most likely not utilize cutting-edge technology.

And keep in mind that by taking free courses through the many options out there (Coursera, MITx, etc.) you would probably get more out of the experience than doing an online MBA through "E Learning" from a school not accredited by AMBA, AACSB, or EQUIS.

Just my two cents.
